Lifesaving South Africa
Lifesaving South Africa was formed in May 2003 when two existing bodies, the South African Lifesaving Association (SA Lifesaving) and the South African Surf Lifesaving Union (SASLU), merged to form a single unified governing body for all lifesaving associations in South Africa.
Lifesaving SA is an organisation of volunteers. Members patrol most of the main beaches of KwaZulu-Natal, Eastern Cape, and Western Cape as well as the more popular inland resorts and events over weekends and public holidays. LSA’s primary aim is to protect bathers from drowning in aquatic situations.
